Amanda and her roommates wanted to share their 4th floor Manhattan walk-up with a rescue dog. Sasha seemed sweet and ready for a young family, but within days Sasha was diagnosed with severe pneumonia requiring a lengthy hospitalization.
Happy to reclaim their now healthy dog, they quickly discovered that a healthy Sasha was a sometimes nasty Sasha. Complicating the situation was her profound deafness that made her nearly unmanageable. Now, more than a year after completing a behavior therapy program, Sasha is as well adjusted as any proud New Yorker.
